Abstract: Cytogenetic effects in the rats bone marrow after long-term ingestion of 131 were studied. Significant increase of chromosomal aberrations by dicentric aberrations with and without fragments, acentric fragments, atypical chromosomes and polyploidies was found. Chromatid-type aberrations in exposed animals were present at the same level as in the control group.

Keywords: isotope 131I, dose formation, bone marrow cells, chromosomal aberrations, polyploidy.
